Rocky Mountain Wood Tick

Rocky Mountain Wood Tick

Scientifically described as Dermacentor andersoni, the Rocky Mountain wood tick gains its common name from its primary habitat in the United States, although the species can also be found in southwestern Canada. The bloodsucking parasite is one of the two major vectors of the typhus-like disease known as Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
